*rolls her eyes at Kate* Yes, Mom.  look, don’t worry, I’ll e-mail at least every day or two, and send you guys lots of pictures.  Dick needs a break, but I don’t. I’ll keep one eye on the sitch back here, promise.

*squeezes Kate* sounds fine with me, but there’s nothing wrong with worrying. You two have fun together, go unwind as much as you can. I’m sure Kate will keep you up to date on everything Gotham.

Email every day and ring every other. *grumbles again, hands moving to Diana’s.* And don’t have too much fun.

You want me to phone?  Seriously?  Kate, you don’t need proof of life, this is a vacation, not a kidnapping.  *smirks*  You don’t hear me telling you two to not have too much fun, do you?

*folds her arms, grinning*  Now…about that suitcase…?

*peck’s Kate’s cheek* That’ll be very nice Bette. All the way to Italy too! Be sure to take lots of pictures for us. 

I am so out of it right now, because I could’ve sworn you just said you’re going to Italy. *blinks, turning her face against Diana’s neck before turning back to Bette.* Stay in contact, yeah? Given the whole thing with Tim. Don’t go off the radar.

*rolls her eyes at Kate* Yes, Mom.  look, don’t worry, I’ll e-mail at least every day or two, and send you guys lots of pictures.  Dick needs a break, but I don’t. I’ll keep one eye on the sitch back here, promise.

*laughs* You’ll have ALL the quiet you want for the next week, trust me!  I’m going away with Dick for a little while.  Can I borrow a suitcase?  All I’ve got is my overnight bag and a big trunk.

*wraps her arms around Kate, nosing in on the two* You’re going away with Dick for a whole week? Oh that’s sounds like it will be a fun trip! *brushes her head against Kate’s neck* Where will you two be staying? 

*leans back a little, huffing a breath.* A week? A whole week? Seriously?

Yup!  A whoooole week, the place all to yourselves.  Won’t that be nice?  *grins wide at Diana, almost squeaking with excitement*  No big deal, he’s just taking me to the Wayne villa… ON LAKE COMO, ITALY!!! Eeee!

*Bette comes in, carrying her overnight bag from the Watchtower, moving in a whirlwind between her bedroom and the bathroom and back again*

“Hey Kate?  Diana?  Either of you home?”  *emerges from the bedroom again*

*peers round the door o her bedroom.* Why are you making so much noise? Shhhh. *grumbles, running a hand through her hair.*

[Text] Kate, just stop. You’re making things worse, not better!

[Text] don’t care.

[Text] well start caring!  This isn’t just about you! Please kate, STOP!

She scowled, pulling her legs under her. “If it’s about Tim, then Bruce can tell me it’s about Tim and I will go and we can talk about him. Bruce’s pride is what’s getting in the way right now.”

“No, it isn’t,” the blonde said simply. “If his pride was in the way, he’d be excluding you entirely and taking the attitude that he doesn’t need all of the rest of us to meet with him.  If it was his pride, he’d just decide whatever he wanted and we would be getting instructions on what he wants done, or hearing nothing at all…not asked to meet with him.”

She slid her laptop to the table and crossed her arms, “And maybe you don’t know our cousin as well as you think you do, Kate, but he’s asking, and for him to be including us is huge. You just don’t see it because he’s not in the habit of saying please and thank you.”

“Right„” Kate shrugged. “Fine. Fine, I’ll go, but if he’s a pompous ass I’m going to tell him and them I’m going to go.” She grumbled, flopping back against the couch.

“Where’s he even been all this time, anyway? And he didn’t ask us to meet him- he demanded.”

"You two are more alike than either of you care to admit. You both see the value in discipline, enforce it with your associates, and drive one another crazy when you pull it on each other," Bette shook her head, but she was clearly amused.

"Anyway, you’ll get a chance to ask him where he’s been when we meet up in the morning, right?"

[The message status remains ‘Pending.’]

Kate almost growled and threw her phone down after ten minutes, calling over to her cousin. “I’m not going, Bette.”

Bette looked up from her laptop.  ”But, you have to.  We all do.  Come on, Kate, this is no time for pride.  What if this is about Tim?”

She scowled, pulling her legs under her. “If it’s about Tim, then Bruce can tell me it’s about Tim and I will go and we can talk about him. Bruce’s pride is what’s getting in the way right now.”

“Morning, Bette.” Diana smiled, fluffing her damp hair with a towel as she crossed the room and settled in beside Kate. “Eggs over easy are my favorite if you don’t mind.” 

Diana wrapped her arms around Kate’s waist from behind, hugging her closer while her wet hair dripped against her own shoulders, “So, how’s the birthday girl today, hmm?” drumming her fingers lightly against Kate’s sides as she looked to Bette, “You certainly pulled out all the stops in spoiling your cousin this morning, what a great gift.” 

She gave a quick peck against Kate’s neck, teasing “33 more of those to go.” 

“You deserve some freedom, Betts. You’ve earned it. You’ve given me pig, and I trust you.” Kate smiled softly at Bette, tugging her into a hug before she moved away. “Doesn’t mean I won’t do something painful to him if he hurts you, though.”

She leaned back against Diana, squirming slightly under her fingers. “She has. I’m good, little tired after last night but nothing a shower and a little longer in bed with my girlfriend won’t cure?”

Kate grinned, turning her head slightly. “Only 33? Well, save them up. I should head for that shower.” She quickly finished the last forkful of eggs and stood, swallowing and turning to kiss Diana gently. “Have a good day, coz.”

"You too, Kate!" Bette waved at her with the spatula. She eased the eggs onto two slices of toast and brought them over to Diana, along with a clean juice glass.  

"You want some coffee?  It’s Kona, the real thing."  Before Diana could answer, she brought over a clean coffee mug and the carafe as well. Even if Diana wasn’t going to have any, Bette would. This coffee wasn’t going to waste.  "I was just asking Kate how you were settling in.  So how are you?  Settling in, I mean.  Not…that I don’t want to know how you are in general, of course…heh.  Um.  Let’s pretend I asked both questions."  Open mouth, insert foot, yeah, you haven’t lost the knack, Bette.
